History


     On December 6, 1992, Pastor Joe N. Dixon heard the call and became a blessing to his followers and God.  Greater Mount Zion Christian Church had its first service the first Sunday in December, which was our grand opening at Bells Fork in Greenville, North Carolina.  We marched forth along with our Pastor and God in front of us, starting a new frontier where few men dared to walk.  Knowing the way would be hard; we knew we had to make it in order for God’s church to go on and our Pastor’s vision to becomea reality.  With his wife, children and dedicated members, we kept marching.  Pastor Dixon’s first sermon was, "Jesus, the Hope of the World," with the text Isaiah 53:45.  So with a small band of believers and followers, through Dr. Dixon Greater Mount Zion was born.  The membership consisted of: 1 Minister(Eldress Reatha Dixon), in 1993 Elder Willie Baker became assistant Pastor until 2003 when he became Pastor of Greater Life Church Ministries, 3 Deacons, 3 Mothers, 3 Trustees, 1 Pastor Steward, 3 Ushers, 1Musician and a choir.

     On October 2, 1995, the Pastor sugested that we start an 8:00am service.  Our first 8:00am service was held on the 2nd Sunday in October.  During this time, we were also discussing finding a permanent home for Greater Mount Zion Christian Church.  We began sponsoring rallies and programs to raise monies.  In August of 1996, we purchased 11 acres of land on Old Fleming School Road.

Affirmation of Faith 

     We believe in God our Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love; and in His Son, our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who for us people evermore, exalted at the right hand of the Father, whose kingdom shall have no end.  We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, proceeding from the Father and the Son, exalted and glorified; taking of the things of Christ, revealing them to us, comforting, renewing and inspiring our spirits.  We believe in the persistence of personality and immortality of the soul and we look for the victory of righteousness over evil, life over death, and for the life of the world to come.  AMEN! 

Ministerial Staff Consist of:

Assistant to the Bishop Linda Dixon
Elder Ronnie Baker
Bishop Retha Dixon (Associate Council)


     On January 3, 1997, Pastor Dixon presented the future plans of the new church structure in a meeting.  We all agreed and worked even harder on our programs.  Our Building Fund Committee was formed with: Brother Ronnie Baker, Deacon Walter Phelps, and Sister Mary Teel.  After the unanimous vote to move forward with architectural plans for our new church building, the "B" team kept working and the members kept their pledges, tithes, and offerings coming to support the new church.  Dr. Dixon kept reminding us to keep looking up, marching forward and preached a very soul-stirring sermon, "What God has for Me, Is for Me."  There were three parts to this sermon an all encouraged and motivated us to keep going and praise God.

     In April of 1998, we made the down payment for the church to be built by Carolina Model Homes.  Construction for our new church home began in July of 1998.  On January 15, 1999, Pastor Dixon presented to us the subcontractor workers that would make the pews and the furniture.

     Like any winning team, with the Pastor's leadership we as members painted, scrubbed floors, cleaned and cooked meals for the workers.  As you can see, the efforts were not in vain!
